The diamond engagement rings of Hollywoods’ elite appeal to everyone’s imagination, hence the thorough coverage on the subject. Though Hollywood will always be fabulous, if you want to see impressive engagement rings you do not need to cross the Atlantic. There are plenty of examples in our own backyard, in Belgium, like the ring that King Filip gave to Queen Mathilde for their engagement. A remarkable specimen set with a large oval ruby surrounded by diamonds. It will become as iconic, nor popular as the one of Kate Middleton and Lady Di, but it is completely on-trend. Coloured diamonds and gemstones are hipper than ever. And so is red: the colour of love.

Queen Mathilde herself is not a major advocate for jewellery. She only has 3 rings: her wedding ring, her engagement ring and the sapphire ring King Filip gave her to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. Besides those three rings, she barely wears any other piece of jewellery. She is hardly ever seen with a necklace and her choice of earrings is always very subtle. Queen Mathilde will never be seen without her wedding ring, but only wears her engagement ring on official occasions, which is why it is not so well known. Nevertheless, this ring is considered to be one of the fairest of all royal engagement rings.

We have the perfect engagement ring for you, royal or just fabulous, with or without coloured diamonds and/or gemstones. If you can not find your perfect engagement ring in our selection, our team of experts will happily help you create your own through our tailor-made ring service.
